At age 17, I gave birth to a son I did not keep. At age 28, I became a midwife. At age 33, I gave birth at home to my daughter, Sara. At age 37 I gave birth at home to my daughter Josie.
I can tell you that only one mama in ten has a belly that is smooth and flat and looks like it’s never been pregnant. Being a midwife has helped me get over the tummy that never goes away… and here it is. That’s Josie, now 2.5, looking on.

    This is a wonderful photo, particularly because your daughter is obviously curious and admiring of her mother. Love it!

    Gorgeous! Your belly in all its glory helps me to find the beauty in my own, so much like yours. Thank you for sharing AND all you do for women. It is a sacred calling, midwifery.
